Florida Statute Chapter 734.102
Broward County Probate Lawyer Larry Tolchinsky
Florida welcomes many people every year who choose to live here part of the year or who decide to buy investment properties like condos, townhouses, or time shares here in the Sunshine State. There are a great many property owners in Florida who are not full time residents of the State of Florida. When these people pass away, then their Florida property must be dealt with in probate proceedings just as the property that they own at home, whether that is another state or a foreign country, must be finalized under the law of that jurisdiction.
When someone who is a non-resident of Florida dies, the assets that he or she owned here in Florida immediately become owned by his or her Florida estate pursuant to Chapter 734 of the Florida Probate Code. This will require an ancillary administration to be opened in the Florida probate courts to legally pass those Florida properties to the beneficiaries, just as the main probate administration in the decedent’s home state or country disposes of the assets held in that location.
